    Fully agree with FL here. If it becomes a 15 yard penalty players will just tackle receivers before the ball is there whenever they're beat deep. Why not? It's only 15 yards, not a long penalty.

    Unless you have the wrong color flag.

    It was inside two minutes so neither team could challenge anyways. But throwing that out the window, the only challenge possible on the play would have been if they threw the flag. Then the Rams could have challenged that the ball was tipped at the line, and no pass interference could take place after the tip. I don't think it was tipped but that was one of the excuses that was used at the time.

    So I'm glad they've made it where both teams can challenge the play.

    Itís not like coaches want to give up 15 yards for free.

    College doesnít do a spot foul on PI and there isnít, to my knowledge, an insane amount of PI calls.

    Your argument doesnít really stand up.

    They should at least give the 15 yard penalty a one year trial.

    Agreed!!

    I am quite sure that few if any of us want more flags, more time outs, lengthier games......what many of us want is to get the call right, especially when most of the world watching it can see it! And yes, if it is a potentially game-changing situation that did not have to happen. Like I've mentioned, an offside call in the 1st Q of the 1st game of the season might not matter....but a blatant miss-call, with the game on the line, needs to be corrected, especially when the league has the tools to do it.

    One more thing....you might not have seen, but I said red flag when I meant yellow flag. That was a slight of mind on my part! I have a lot of those "slights of mind"!!!
